KFAI - Undead
Vaaska - Todos Contra Todos album cover


Todos Contra Todos, 2015

8.0 / 10

I've been meaning to check out this Austin, TX-based band for quite some time now (they’ve been active since 2009) but for whatever reason I’ve never gotten around to it. ...

Vacation - Candy Waves album cover


Candy Waves, 2013

8.7 / 10

Here at Scene Point Blank we don’t give titles to our work. If I titled my Vacation review, though, it would be named after track ten: “Feedback Got Me High.” ...

Vacation - Mouth Sounds #2699 album cover


Mouth Sounds #2699, 2018

7.7 / 10

For running with the DIY punk scene, Vacation are surprisingly diverse (not to mention prolific). The band’s latest is the 12-song Mouth Sounds #2699 and its 26-minute span delivers the band’s general ...

Vacation - Self Titled album cover


Self Titled, 2011

8.7 / 10

First off, forgive me if at some point I wander off and say something about Summer Vacation or Vacation Bible School, and I keep mixing these bands up in my ...

Valina - A Tempo! A Tempo! album cover


A Tempo! A Tempo!, 2009

8.4 / 10

For a band whose hyperbolic press sheet claims they’ve played 75,854 shows in their eleven year history (that’s only 18.88 per day by my count) you’d think I would have ...

Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires Of The City album cover

Vampire Weekend

Modern Vampires Of The City, 2013

8.9 / 10

When the hoax artwork claiming the group’s next album was to be “Lemon Sounds” appeared, it is perhaps unsurprising that so many people were convinced it was real. For the ...

Van Halen - A Different Kind Of Truth album cover

Van Halen

A Different Kind Of Truth, 2012

8.0 / 10

Let’s get right to it. I think we can all agree that lead-off single “Tattoo” is a shitty song. And any album that has the opening lyrics of I've got ...

Van Johnson - Holiday Tour EP album cover

Van Johnson

Holiday Tour EP, 2004

7.0 / 10

The first time I heard of Van Johnson, I assumed it was a porn star. Immediately when I got home from seeing Off Minor and overhearing a conversation about them, ...

Vancouver / Zatokrev - Split album cover

Vancouver / Zatokrev

Split, 2008

6.0 / 10

Get a Life! Records brought together two bands on its roster to release a split recording. The twenty minute split features two tracks from each of the bands who have ...

Vandoliers - Forever album cover


Forever, 2019

7.0 / 10

There’s a lot to like on Forever, the third album from Vandoliers. They play a hybrid country-punk that’s a bit too upbeat for No Depression and too gritty for traditional country, ...

Vanessa Van Basten - Vanessa  Van Basten (Reissue) album cover

Vanessa Van Basten

Vanessa Van Basten (Reissue), 2008

7.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Fortunately for all, Vanessa Van Basten is not the name of the latest female pop diva. Instead, they are a two-piece instrumental duo from Italy that draws heavily from the ...

Vånna Inget - Utopi album cover

Vånna Inget

Utopi, 2019

8.0 / 10

Vånna Inget is a band I almost forgot about. That’s what six year of absence can do. Things have not been completely quiet during those years to be honest. There ...

Various Artists -  Say Sue Me / Otoboke Beaver Split 7” album cover

Various Artists

Say Sue Me / Otoboke Beaver Split 7”, 2017

8.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Though the thought of pairing a shoegazey indie pop band with an anything-goes punk group on a split record may seem odd, in the case of this effort from South ...

Various Artists -  Starkweather/Concealment - Split album cover

Various Artists

Starkweather/Concealment - Split, 2018

8.7 / 10

After seven patient years Starkweather releases their third split Divided by Zero with Portugal’s Concealment. The two-song split cements itself with every listen as masterful. Like a vitamin, it’s not to be consumed on an ...

Various Artists - A Death Cinematic / Sons Of Alpha Centaurii - Split album cover

Various Artists

A Death Cinematic / Sons Of Alpha Centaurii - Split, 2010

8.0 / 10

A good split record now and then is a great concept by two collaborating outfits, and even though people might be more familiar with one of the artists or groups ...

Various Artists - A.N.S. & Ramming Speed - Split album cover

Various Artists

A.N.S. & Ramming Speed - Split, 2011

7.2 / 10

This is like a new school thrash of the titans album. Both bands have made their names being basically thrash metal bands each with their own slight twist. So you ...

Various Artists - Airs + Lunaire Split album cover

Various Artists

Airs + Lunaire Split, 2011

8.0 / 10

Airs are a band based on both sides of America. One member being in California and the other in Florida, how they get anything done is beyond me. But whatever ...

Various Artists - Alaric / Atriarch - Split album cover

Various Artists

Alaric / Atriarch - Split, 2012

7.5 / 10

Splits, in general, are dicey: often two bands (or more) are vaguely similar, making for a decent record but one that usually acts as filler. These releases seem to contain ...
